Singapore Changi Airport handled 4.37 million passenger movements in May 2014, a growth of 2.0% compared to the same period in 2013. Flight movements increased by 1.7% to 28,930. During the month, 157,500 tonnes of airfreight were processed at Changi, a 3.5% increase year-on-year.
The growth in passenger traffic was supported by an increase in air travel between Singapore and Northeast Asia, South Asia and Southwest Pacific, offset by weaker performance on some Southeast Asian routes. Among Changi Airport’s top 10 country markets, Hong Kong and Vietnam registered double-digit increases. Travel to and from Thailand continued to be impacted by the political situation, decreasing by 17%, with Bangkok and Phuket traffic dropping by 24% and 7% respectively.
For the period of January to May 2014, 21.95 million passenger movements were recorded at Changi, 1.8% more than the corresponding period in 2013. Aircraft landings and take-offs grew by 3.6% to 143,550. Cargo shipments increased by 0.8% to 755,400 tonnes for the same period.
As at 1 June 2014, more than 100 airlines operate at Changi Airport, connecting Singapore to 290 cities in some 75 countries and territories worldwide. With more than 6,600 weekly scheduled flights, an aircraft takes off or lands at Changi roughly once every 90 seconds.
